Direct Marketing In A Week

Maximize Sales Through Direct Mail In Seven Simple Steps

By Patrick Forsyth

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

You are just seven steps away from generating more business through direct mail
Direct Marketing In A Week is a simple and straightforward guide to making this promotional activity effective. It gives you the techniques you really need to know in just seven short chapters. From adopting a systematic approach to getting the words that express your ideas down in a correct, clear, original and acceptable way, to maintaining your potential buyers' interest and prompting positive buying decisions, you'll discover how direct mail can be used as an effective part of your promotional mix - and how similar techniques can enhance email marketing. You'll also find exercises to help you put it all into action kick-starting improved business generation.

Direct marketing just got easier
Picking the right promotional mix is not easy. Whatever is done it must be effective, and also cost-effective, and both budgets and time are no doubt limited. Business does not arrive unbidden (or very little of it does), nor does it magically arrive just by crossing your fingers and shouting 'Promotion!'; so something must be done and time and effort must be expended to make sure it works.

Even in this electronic age, direct mail remains a popular form of promotion. It can certainly find and hold customers and do so cost-effectively too. But, you may have noticed, it does not have the best image - the words 'junk mail' are frequently used in relation to direct mail offerings! However, used carefully, it can work for seller and buyer alike. This book sets out how to utilize direct marketing formaximum benefit for both.

If you position the use of direct mail effectively within the totality of your promotional mix, and make it work well - and that means systematically making sure that every element of it works well, from a letter and brochure to an envelope and much more - it can be an important part of your business generating process. In this book, in seven succinct chapters,we review how to make that so.

Each of the seven chapters in Direct Marketing In A Week covers a different aspect:
- Sunday: The recipients: database considerations
- Monday: The core elements of direct mail
- Tuesday: The component mix
- Wednesday: Creatively enhancing persuasiveness
- Thursday: Follow-up activity
- Friday: Email approaches: as easy as 'click'
- Saturday: Future campaigns

A Cure for Heartache

Mary Jane Grant
Authors:
Mary Jane Grant

'A tale of loss and hope, of strength drawn from truly inhabiting the moment.' - Raynor Winn, author of The Salt PathShattered when her 25-year marriage comes to an abrupt and painful end, writer Mary Jane Grant runs away to London to immerse herself in any reality but her own. Reeling from the shock and loss of her marriage and the life she's known, she begins to discover that if she can just focus on the moment, take notice of the people, the sights and smells around her, that her pain and grief start to recede. From the bustling cafes of Camden and the pastel-coloured streets of Primrose Hill, to the sun soaked vineyards of the south of France, her journey leads her to rich new experiences that she could never have imagined in her old life. Real connections are made, she lets go of the things she no longer needs, and takes pleasure in the good, generous and beautiful parts of life that she encounters every day. Beautifully and succinctly told, this is a story about what happens when you embrace life, whatever it may bring, with surprising - and joyful - results. While the tea steeped, I split open the muffin and slathered butter across the warm, crumbly surface. I watched the butter melt. I took a bite. Memories of my grandmother's kitchen came back. I cradled the smooth white cup in my hand, ran my fingers over the uneven top of the time-worn wooden table. I looked around the place and watched people. Time passed. I realised that it was an hour since I first saw the sign telling me to smell the tea. And, all this time I had been possessed of neither sad memories nor anxious worries. I was completely and simply here, with the tea, the place, the people, myself. I was present. And it felt wonderful.

You Can Begin Again

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

It's never too late for grace. Look closely enough and you'll see that theme all through the Bible. Page after page, story after story--God delights in turning tragic endings into new beginnings. The barren give birth, doubters become deliverers, and harlots are recast as heroes. In every biblical fresh start, we are reminded that with God, new beginnings aren't the exception; they're the rule.Using a blend of inspiring stories, Scriptural principles, and straight-talk, in You Can Begin Again, Joyce Meyer powerfully demonstrates that God isn't done with you yet. If you're stuck in a rut, disappointed by an outcome, hurting from a wound, failing in an endeavour, struggling in a relationship, or unsure about the future . . . don't give up. Don't give up on yourself, and don't give up on the God who loves you. If you thought it was too late, it's not. With God you can begin again.

The Dalai Lama, Howard C. Cutler, Dalai Lama, Howard Cutler

Following the massive success of The Art of Happiness, the Dalai Lama & Howard Cutler now bring their bestselling message to our working lives.Of the many Dalai Lama titles on sale, The Art of Happiness - written with western psychiatrist Howard Cutler - is by far the biggest bestseller of them all. A huge international success, it has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, with nearly 300,000 of these in the UK alone. Now, this inspirational new book brings the successful East-meets-West pairing together again to provide a practical application of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual values to the world of work.In this wise and practical book, the Dalai Lama shows us how to place our working lives into the context of our lives as a whole. Rather than striving to find a role which suits us, we should allow our work to arise naturally from who we are - and what is most important to us. From here we reach a pathway that can lead us to true life fulfilment and purpose.
